Take a walk along our Ecopark trail

Enjoy a walk through one of Nordens Ark’s biggest conservation projects on home soil: the Ecopark trail. The trail is about 5km long and passes through the Nordens Ark Ecopark. Here we’re working to increase biological diversity by restoring the landscape to how it looked during the 1700s and 1800s.

Along the trail you’ll get a taste of the region’s richly varying nature, from exposed rocks and lush flower meadows to shady stream valleys. Information posts will tell you about the Ecopark project and about the local nature and culture. Short detours from the trail will take you to the Varpet viewpoint and historic sites such as Åbyhällen, Glose altar and Nycander burial place. You can read more about the Ecopark and the thing to see here. 
Maps are available at reception in Nordens Ark Hotel, or you can download them as PDFs. Trails with an interactive map can be found at www.soteleder.se.
It’s free to walk in the Ecopark, but we offer a hiking package including accommodation and food. Please remember to respect rights of way.
Parts of the trail pass through grazing lands, so please keep your dog on a lead.
